Company & Partnership Dispute Resolution Solicitors

When people in business fall out amongst themselves Forbes Dispute Resolution Solicitors will be there to work with you to help you pick up the pieces. Sometimes we advise the individual leaving the business regarding what he or she can expect to recover from the business, and sometimes we advise the company or partnership what liability they are facing and how the business can continue. When appropriate we call in our Corporate or Employment Solicitors to ensure that all angles are explored.

When someone leaves a company you will need to consider potential claims as a director, shareholder and employee. There are often urgent matters to resolve such as recovery of assets taken by a departing director and then more long term matters such as agreeing a valuation for the departing director's shares.

There may be issues regarding breach of a director's duties or breach of restrictive covenants. Sometimes these disputes can be complex if there are a number of people involved and if there is a considerable history to the dispute. The nature of the business and the role that the departing director had will have an impact on the dispute. Emotions often run high. Forbes Dispute Resolution Solicitors will provide you with a professional view as to where you stand so that you can make reasoned decisions.

Some company proceedings are very specialist such as derivative actions and s.994 proceedings claiming unfair prejudice and Forbes Solicitors have the expertise to deal with these. We also advise in connection with disputes arising out of shareholders agreements and contentious company constitutional matters.

We can advise in connection with partnership disputes whether it's a business with a partnership agreement or under the Partnership Act and regarding dissolution and / or the continuation of the partnership business. We advise regarding the disposal of assets and the distribution of sale proceeds and the team has experience of Court proceedings, arbitration and mediation in partnership disputes.
